Welcome Megan DeLeon and Jodie Comerford to the OT Works! team. They are graduates of the Occupational Therapy program at the University of British Columbia. Megan and Jodie work primarily with ICBC clients, individuals with 3rd party health coverage and privately-paying customers. They guide clients with various diagnoses in managing their daily activities at home, work and in the community. They help their clients manage their pain and anxiety to improve their independent functioning.
Megan journeys alongside her clients as they try out strategies to achieve their greatest potential. She brings a wealth of knowledge regarding mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBI) and concussions due to her previous experience working in the Head Injury Assessment and Treatment Services Program. She enjoys working one-on-one with her clients to foster both mental and physical wellbeing. Megan serves clients in the Metro Vancouver region from Vancouver, Richmond and Delta to Langley and Maple Ridge.
Jodie emphasizes the importance of the biopsychosocial approach to fully understand all the factors that affect a person’s health. She has formerly worked with adults with development disabilities and therefore has a well-structured approach to behaviour modification, skill development and goal attainment. Jodie also serves clients in the Metro Vancouver region from Vancouver, Richmond and Delta to Langley and Maple Ridge.
Like all of our therapists, Megan and Jodie are full registrants and in good standing with the College of Occupational Therapists of British Columbia (COTBC).

With a growing demand for occupational therapists in urban and rural areas of British Columbia, OT Works! is thrilled with the recent announcement by the Government of BC and the University of British Columbia to expand occupational therapy programs. UBC hosts the only OT school in BC and many of our OTs are alumni of their Master’s program. UBC will add an occupational therapy program in northern B.C. in partnership with the University of Northern British Columbia, with its first intake starting September 2022. The OT program at UBC-Vancouver also plans to add 8 seats to its program in the coming years.
OT Works! looks forward to working with more UBC and UNBC grads in the future. Together, we can improve the health and wellness of our local communities.
